In "War and Pieces," the first of three spine-tingling tales, Marge, worried about the effects of excessively violent video games, encourages Bart and Milhouse to give wholesome, classic board games a shot.

Convinced that Roger is sabotaging their getaway and plotting a murder of his own, Homer and Marge take matters ... Written by
